Earlier in the evening we watched part of the documentary When The Levees Broke, which is about Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. It really helped to put into perspective the work we will be doing and understand how much people lost.
We as a youth group wanted to show Tipp and Ma how much we appreciate everything they do for us, which is a lot. In preparation for our last fish fry, Ben and I went shopping for supplies with Ma, and we all played a more active role in the kitchen than we had with previous dinner sales. It made us realize how much work they do for us that we don't know about. So we surprised them both with thank-you cards and gifts.
